House, 3 Bedrooms + Den, 2.5 Baths, (Sleeps 6-8)
After many years work in mechanical engineering, I retired so I could go sailing. I also enjoy a good game of squash, which I play throughout the year. When I'm home I like to share great meals and funny stories with my friends. This home is ideal for entertaining throughout the year and a great spot to gather your family and friends from around the globe.
Bill purchased this House in 2004
Why Bill chose Halifax County
I transferred to Nova Scotia in 1999, and was determined to make the most of 'Canada's Ocean Playground'. I started with kayaking and was later invited to go sailing. The instant I felt the sails fill with wind to carry us across St. Margarets Bay I was hooked, I had to stay. The hospitality and friendship of Nova Scotians is so compelling I decided to build a home on the ocean so that I could enjoy the bold views and peaceful surroundings as well as the people. I built my home in 2004 and have never looked back. Now I sail whenever possible, which is why I am able to share my home with you, especially in the Summer and Fall! Come and enjoy the comfort of my home and all that Nova Scotia has to offer.
What makes this House unique
Spending time in my home you will feel any stress of the day melting away. It is so peaceful and relaxing here. If you've never sat at the edge of the ocean and watched the waves roll in, you owe it to yourself to try it. And at night, watch in wonder at the stars. They are so clear and bright out in the country.

Lovely House with an Incredible View
My husband and I were in Halifax for work for three weeks and wanted an out of the way place where we could unwind at the end of the day. This house was perfect. It is clean, bright, well equipped and the location was incredible. We had a lobster boil down by the water! We would highly recommend Bill’s place if you’re looking for a quiet get away and hope to return next year.

We had a very enjoyable stay in Blind Bay. The scenery was awesome, the house was very nicely appointed. Everything was as stated in the listing. Thank you Bill for allowing us to stay in your lovely home.
Great relaxing stay
The house was spacious and all beds were very comfy. The area is very quiet but accessible to Peggy’s Cove, Lunenburg, Halifax and the Annapolis valley for wine tours. Bill was most helpful and informative and easy to communicate with. We had our wonderful view of the bay. This was the best equipped kitchen. Highly recommended for a relaxing stay
Many thanks for your review of my home. I’m happy to hear how handy and relaxing it was for your travels around Nova Scotia. It was great chatting with you and your group with everyone eager to make the most of their vacation. And it’s wonderful to gather in the kitchen and dining area to wind down and enjoy a home cooked meal after a day out. I cook most evenings so appreciate that you found my kitchen to be well equipped : )
Gorgeous home in a gorgeous setting
This was a lovely property and we enjoyed our stay. The owner was easy to work with and incredibly pleasant. The house was comfortable and had everything we needed for a perfect stay. It’s location means a long drive to most of what we hoped to see in NS but it was entirely worth it to have such a peaceful oasis to return to.
Thank you for your kind words and review of my home. I’m glad you enjoyed time to connect and relax as a family before one of your daughters starts university. And what a lovely description you gave: coming home to a peaceful oasis after a day of sightseeing. So apt. Thank you.
Had a great stay at Bill's place. Everything was as listed. The views are spectacular from his property. Great location to view sunsets. We hope to get back there next year. Nice central location between Halifax and Peggy's Cove.
Thank you for your review David,
It was a pleasure to welcome you and your family to my home. It was nice to be introduced to everyone both in person and through VRBO messaging ahead of your arrival. I’m glad you enjoyed your stay, including jogging on the peninsula, cooking lobster in the back yard and all the sightseeing you packed in. Coming home to these fabulous views of the bay with ever-changing sunsets is so relaxing after a day out and about. As for next year, my door will be open any time you would like to return.
